Bandai-Namco helped to develop Mario Kart 8
Super Smash Bros isn’t the only first party Nintendo game Bandai-Namco is helping out with. The credits for Mario Kart 8 have just leaked out and if you want to spoil it then check it out here.
I will spoil one thing for you. The credits list Bandai-Namco as a developer that worked on and helped with Mario Kart 8. Obviously most of the game was developed by Nintendo themselves but its good to see the company reaching out to third parties to make collaborations.
With this, Hyrule Warriors, Nintendo’s pursuit of Platinum’s fine games and Namco helping with Smash Bros the company is really courting third parties more than they have in past years.
